RGMG Charity Event - October 2016
The Ryerson Global Management Group would like to give back to the Ryerson University Community and to the citizens of Toronto with our inaugural pop-up soup kitchen in celebration of the Canadian Thanksgiving. The RGMG wants to engage with the community to express our gratitude and promote social responsibility by giving back to the public. As leaders, it is our mission to continue to acknowledge the opportunity that Ryerson students have given us in the past to allow our organization to flourish.
The RGMG charity will be an inaugural event. We hope that this event will become a staple charity event for the years to come.
